NEW YORK (AP)—Jason Miller had 16 points and 10 rebounds, Niko Scott scored 15 points and Columbia handed the New Jersey Institute of Technology its 49th straight loss, 73-50 on Friday night.
Isaiah Wilkerson had 13 points and Justin Garris added 11 for the Highlanders (0-16), who extended their NCAA Division I-record losing streak.
Columbia (5-9) trailed 4-0 after the first 1:32, but then went on a 20-4 run to take a 12-point lead with 11:53 left in the opening half. The Lions expanded the advantage to 43-23 by halftime.
Columbia has now won all four meetings with the Highlanders including a 73-60 victory on Nov. 17, 2006, that was the first Div. I defeat for NJIT, which had opened its initial season at the level with victories over Mahnattan and Rider.
